“Mint Condition: How Baseball Cards Became an American Obsession”

Dave Jamieson

I should have an “other people’s hobbies” category for books like this.   For some reason I’m fascinated by stories of people who are interested in things that I’m not particularly interested in.  There was a time, though, when cards were a penny and came with a stick of gum, that I would stop at the dairy store on the way home from school…   Anyway, this is an interesting book about the history of baseball cards and the people who collect them.
